U.S. News and World Report ranked Granby Memorial High School as 19th for public high schools in the State of Connecticut. The rankings are based on a high rate of participation and passage for AP exams, our state reading and math assessments exceed expectations, and we outperformed state averages in serving our black, Hispanic and low-income students ( Excluding charter and magnet schools, the other Hartford county schools in the Top 20 were Hall, 11th; Conard, 12th; Simsbury 14th, and Farmington 20th.

In addition, for the tenth year in a row, the Granby Board of Education received the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) Level II – Board of Distinction Award. The presentation, above, was made at its annual dinner in November.
